If you drive in Coeur d’Alene, there are some intersections you may want to avoid in the next month. The city’s Wastewater Utility will begin the 2011 Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) project this week, involving the rehabilitation of approximately 7,850 linear feet of existing sewer piping.
The process involves the insertion and curing of the liner material from existing manholes, which are typically located in the intersections of streets and/or alleys. That means machinery and trucks will partially obstruct affected intersections. With a few exceptions, all work will take place during daylight hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the project will be completed by mid-August.
The following streets and alleys will be affected:
• Alley east of Nora Street from Emma to Davidson.
• 2nd Street from Poplar to Hazel.
• Hazel Avenue from 2nd to 7th.
• 5th Street from Poplar to Hazel.
• 7th Street from Locust to Harrison.
• Alley east of 18th north of Young.
• Off-road sewer line from Anton to Haycraft.
• Haycraft between Government Way and US 95.
• East side of US 95 from Haycraft to Appleway.
• Parking areas and driveways south of Appleway, immediately east and west of Government Way.
